NBYC Update – Tier 2

In response to the most recent guidance about Norfolk moving into Tier 2 we are delighted that NBYC will reopen on 2nd December.

Slipways will be open and members may reach, attend to their boats, and sail. Unfortunately “Teal” is presently out for winter maintenance and therefore will not be available. The clubhouse will be closed, except for access to toilets, but the Office will be open for winter hours.

Discussions are ongoing about a return to Saturday training, Social sailing, and Sunday racing. Members will be informed about what is available as soon as it is organised.
The most recent RYA guidance is clear and helpful and we recommend you read this: https://www.rya.org.uk/SiteCollectionDocuments/clubs/Covid%20FAQs%20in%20England%20from%20Dec%202nd%202020.pdf 
However the Broads Authority have yet to revise their current guidance although we do not anticipate it will be materially different.


In response to the announcement by the Prime Minister, made on the 30th Oct, we find ourselves having to close the clubhouse from midnight on the 4th November until the 2nd December. The remaining racing and training calendar for 2020 is cancelled, but will resume as soon as practicable. The club crane will be available, as will Teal for those wishing to reach boats on swinging moorings. Members are reminded to adhere to the hygiene protocols currently in place. We are seeking clarification from the relevant authorities as to whether boats may be moved to winter storage elsewhere after the closure and will advise members as soon as possible. Those wishing to store boats on trailers in the top field may do so until the restrictions are lifted.
The Management Committee want to assure you that NBYC will be offering as full and as exciting a programme of racing and social activity in 2021 as will be possible and much work has already been done to ensure this will be the case.
